Your camera needs a mic input and your recorder needs a stereo output. Otherwise you'll have to do it in post.

I have a Vixia R700 and a Lumix ZS100. The Vixia has a mic in, the Lumix doesnt.

Thank you for your help

I´m looking for any decent Video camera with mic in and not too much expensive.

I will tape in Europe

Just a word of caution about this ~~

If something goes wrong with the audio recording aspect of this (loose mic, etc.) -- you've got nothing for audio.  However, if you record the audio separately -- you'll have two recordings (the camera audio in the video file and the separate audio file).  Also note - a lot of cameras don't have an option to record in LPCM.

The Sony cx 550v has a mic input.

This is a 1920 x 1080 flash based camera.

i used to connect sound professional mics with attenuator cable to camera, camcorder. Most cameras has 3.5 input jack, but not all has manual settings for sound like manual gain control. I currently use FUJi X-T3 (connecting mics trough olympus ls-100 out conection) but preams in camera not so good. I think Canon has better preams, because its more for videography.

def would use an attenuator unless there is another way to adjust the signal coming in
